Re: Is being heartbroken the same as grieving? - September 17th 2016, 01:42 PM

I agree in that experiences really vary from person to person, however, I think being heartbroken can be similar to grieving. Being heartbroken during a break up, for instance, can mean that you're grieving the loss of a relationship but not necessarily that the person has passed away. Another example could be someone grieving the loss of their childhood if they had a rough upbringing. But, like it has been said, it varies, and it really depends on how you're feeling and what you think it is like.
